Best-Cure® Generator

Best-Cure-Tobacco

The Best-Cure® Generator

Cuts up to 30 hours of normal yellowing, wilting and drying times of mature leaves, saving you money on electricity and fuel, and yielding higher-quality tobacco leaves.

Reduce instances of green butts, green fibers, and other “off” colors when you use our Best Cure® Generator. Begin by placing the generator in the furnace area, inserting the ethylene hose into the airflow chamber (see photo; also, this page provides more information on generator placement). Then pour in one to four quarts of Ethy-Gen® II into the Best Cure® Generator; ethylene production begins within minutes and is continuous for improved and faster curing.

  • Because it is portable, one can be shared between as many as six curing systems.
  • With intelligent microprocessor technology, critical processes of the generator are monitored. Continuous indication of operation status is provided, making it clearly evident of ethylene production.

This generator provides safe and effective ethylene levels; however, ethylene is explosive at 27,000 ppm, so only use our Best Cure® in spaces that are 2000 ft3 (57m3) or larger.
